Well I guess it's time to update our blog!!! It's been a crazy couple of months, but my new goal (as of 5 seconds ago) is to be more on top of this blog. So what's new?!!?!?!?
(I have no new pics so I thought this little stick figure/pregnant lady would do!)
Well as I'm sure most of you know.....we're expecting!!! We are very excited. What I am not excited about is how sick I have been. Everyone told me it would end at 12 weeks, well everyone lied...because I am still puking. The very scent of anything good or bad pushes me over the edge and nothing, and I mean NOTHING sounds good to eat. I really like my doctor up here in Idaho. Totally nice and willing to prescribe me whatever it takes to help the puking. On a good note though...I am still wearing my own clothes.....YEAH BOI!!!!!!!!!! I feel like I am having a boy, but I will take either! We have been throwing around a few names, but have yet to decide on any. We find out the sex in 5 weeks. The suspense is about to make me go craaaaaaazy.

Tyler is loving his new job. He is an awesome teacher and loves coaching. Right now he is in cross country season and will follow that with basketball. I have been dragged to a couple of football games. It's been an experience in it's self. I swear, Tyler is louder than anyone at that stadium, so I just kinda lay low and text while he is making himself known. We went to an intense game on Friday and the whole time he was getting mad at me because I was telling him to pipe down. The most hilarious part was when the home team scored a touch down in the last two minutes and I look around and witness my husband and some old man jumping in the air high fiving each other. Seriously, that happened!

Idaho is different! Some days I love it and some days I would give my left arm to just see the city! If I could change anything, I would bring some good eating places to this town. I have no desire to eat fast food, except for taco bell (which they don't have). The other day, the husband drove me 30 miles to get some Cafe Rio. I Love Him!!!! People are very nice though. They are always willing to help out and we have a great ward. About 85% of our ward is over 80 yrs old...JUST THE WAY I LIKE IT! hahaha.


  1. I totally feel your pain with the pukes not ending at 12 weeks. I was SICK the WHOLE time with all three of my pregnancies - good luck. Get some preggy pop drops from Motherhood Maternity - I swear they help.

  2. You should name your child Joseph Strickland Matlock. Not after anybody in particular, I just came up with that off the top of my head.

  3. Congrats!! That is exciting for sure. I understand the lack of restaurant situation.... I would kill for a Cheese Cake factory or Baja Fresh ;)

  4. Yay! It's about time you guys updated :) Just remember that nothing any woman tells you about pregnancy is always true for you, every pregnancy is different and every baby is different. You will never hear the end of everyone else experiences. Just smile and nod. I think it's a boy too, but you never know. I can't wait to hear. We miss you guys soooooooooo much and can't wait to come visit you. Loves & hugs.

  5. Congrats on the baby! That is very exciting! I hope you can get over being sick soon! For me it lasted till about 14 weeks, so hang in there! Glad everything else is going well! Take care!

  6. Congrats on the baby news! Soooo exciting, you'll be a GREEEAAATTTT mom Trudi!
